Colourful clocks, Covent Garden, London. They remind me of the old vinyl records.
Never mind the transit strike, the Solidays music festival begins Friday, June 25th in the Bois de Boulogne. Thousands of people will be camped out on the grounds of Hippodrome de Longchamp (that's right across the street from the apartment; we're headed for London)! Headliners include French actress/singer Vanessa Paradis, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Hocus Pocus, Kasabian, Toots and the Maytals and Olivia Ruiz. Check out the full list of 80 musicians here.
Stages have already been set up within Longchamp and some bands are currently fine-tuning their sound systems. I can hear the evidence through the open balcony doors.
The annual event raising funds for HIV prevention, treatment and research continues through Sunday. Take Paris Metro Line 10 to Boulogne Jean-Jaures, exit the station to your right and follow Avenue Charles de Gaulle all the way to the Bois de Boulogne. You'll see signs pointing to various festival entrances. Enjoy!
